Doors, much like door fitters, come in many shapes and sizes, so you need to be certain from the very beginning, exactly what it is that you want. This might raise the question "what kind of doors do I need?", and this is certainly a logical question since with so many styles of door to choose from, you'll need to match your door to your door fitter as it were. To explain, if are looking to get a replacement UPVC door fitted, you should call in a conservatory/window or double glazing specialist, but if you need some wooden internal doors hung, a carpenter will be your man (or woman), and if you need a new solid hardwood front door, again you should find yourself a carpenter/joiner. To avoid any possibility of blunders it is invariably a wise idea to get your elected Launceston door hanging specialist to undertake all of the measuring up, to locate the required doors, and to buy them on your behalf.

Hanging External Doors Launceston

Fitting External Doors Launceston

If you require a brand new external door in Launceston, rear or front, you might be fortunate and find that it is simply a case of replacing an existing door for a fresh one.

Issues can also occur if a door frame or the wall studding has moved in some way to make their alignment be askew. This will create areas of jamming with a replacement door, making it harder to close and open properly.

Why Not Mend Your Own Creaking Door?

Owning your own property in Launceston is fantastic, especially if you happen to be handy at do-it-yourself, since you never need to hunt too far to find something else that needs repairing. One typical issue that bothers everybody in the property until it's fixed, is a creaky door. It is those types of jobs you intend to mend yourself, since it's too minor to employ somebody.

Fix Squeaky Doors Launceston

To begin with you must assess exactly where the creaking is emanating from, as you will need to have that information before you can rectify it. Don't even think about replacing the door itself - until you do a swing test. Swing the door to and fro as you listen carefully to pinpoint the source. You can almost certainly find the source of the squeak in this way, along with the cause. If you listen closely, as you are moving the door at various speeds, you ought to be able to ascertain the exact cause of the squeaking.

One common reason for door squeaks, is the importance of oiling the hinges. To begin with always tighten all of the screws. After that get hold of a flat screwdriver to use to relax the hinge pins. Put a little bit of oil right on the hinge itself. As the oil seeps into the hinge, guide it along by gently swinging the door to and fro. If it was the issue, the lubricant should have fixed the problem. If it still squeaks, there is another possible place to look. Occasionally the squeak can be caused by wood rubbing against other wood. This situation may come about if the door has become swollen because of moisture. If this is the main cause, just move the door stop to keep it from hitting the door. To accomplish this you are going to need a hammer and an offcut of wood. Work with the hammer together with the wood block to move the door stop over a little.

Keep going with it 'til the door shuts easily and quietly. Because this can often result in a little paintwork damage, you should be prepared for a little re-touching. Another likely cause of a door squeak is the hinge hitting on the door lining, which may be cut in too deeply or not deep enough. If this is the case, remove the hinges and sink them in more deeply, or stick a shim in behind the hinges, if they're too deeply sunken. As a result of this experimentation process you should be able to fairly quickly repair any door squeak.

If it isn't a simple repair, the the replacement of the entire door may be the only answer. This is usually a quite simple task if the door concerned is of the pre-hung type. Be sure that the doors match and be ready to do some painting work afterwards. What is important is to do it yourself, and do it right. I am certain your local Launceston door fitters will be ready to help you out if you're concerned about making things worse, or are not crazy about trying this yourself.
